What is a Pasture Mat?

A pasture mat (or cow mattress) is a specialist product used on dairy farms, designed to help provide cows with increased levels of comfort as they rest.

There are various designs for pasture mats but most will incorporate a layer of foam to boost comfort levels and provide better support for cows.

In 2020/2021 the UK’s ‘national dairy herd’ size was reported to be 1.85 million. Over the past few years, average herd sizes have also shown to increase in number, with the average size estimated to be 209 as of 2021.

With each cow in need of a comfortable place to rest, it’s important to consider high-quality, cost-effective materials such as our recon foam.

What Foam is Best for Pasture Mats?

One of the most popular types of foam used within cow mattresses is reconstituted foam. Also known as chip foam or recon foam, this is a heavy-duty foam that is also commonly used to make gymnastics mats, contract seating pads and various forms of foam packaging.

Reconstituted foam is a recycled product made from various new offcuts of high-quality foam grades. Because it is a recycled product, it is also considered a more budget-friendly foam, suitable for heavy-duty applications.

We’ve covered recon foam in greater detail in a previous blog post if you’re interested in reading more about it. You can also contact us directly if you have any specific questions you’d like to ask.
